Portable pet water bottle
Whether you’re human or dog, keeping hydrated while you travel is really important. My husband and I always keep plenty of water in the car, but it can sometimes be messy when you’re trying to water the dog! I recently came across a portable pet water bottle and it makes it much easier to give my dog a drink. Mine features a water bottle with detachable bowl, so you can easily fill up your dog’s water on the go.

Car seat and door
your dog on the rear seat is an easy way to keep them comfortable. However, you
don’t want their comfort to come at the cost of your car interior. If your pup
is anything like mine, they’ll be a bit of a fidget while you’re driving, and mine
can often scratch at the door. Couple this with all the dog hairs and dirt, and
you’ll probably want to at least put a blanket on the car seats. Here’s an even
better idea – buy a car seat and door protector which is specially designed to
fit snugly across the rear seat. Some of them even cover the back of the driver
and passenger seats, giving your dog a cushy hammock to sleep in, while
protecting the inside of the car.

Dogs aren’t the only ones who can travel.

Car seat barrier
it’s just me and my pooch in the car, I often let them sit on the front
passenger seat, but when it’s between the dog and the husband, husband
(usually) wins! This means that our pup is on the back seat and there’s a large
gap for them to squeeze through – the perfect opportunity for them to distract
me while I’m driving. Especially for longer journeys, a car seat barrier is a
great accessory to use, as it keeps your pooch from getting over-excited and
trying to jump into the front of the car. If your dog is travelling in the
boot, a cargo guard will serve the same purpose, while also letting them see
you in the front of the car to reduce their stress during travel.

Doggie travel kit
I take my dog on holiday, it almost feels like I’m taking a baby. I like to
have everything on-hand, including snacks, water, toys and even a microfibre
towel for when they (inevitably) get wet on the beach. With so many things to
carry, I pack them all in a doggie travel bag with individual compartments so
that everything is easy to access when needed. It might seem a little like
overkill, but believe me, it eliminates those moments when I can’t remember
where the dog treats are.
